beg with the court not to incarcerate them. what happens? you spend time in jail and you pay the fine. but you are fault a corporate client. you are an individual. >>shepard: the money they made for profit was $2.5 billion in the last quarter. the fine is $600 million less than that. the people who are sitting on this side of the aisle on this side of the border there, and are seeing what this corruption has done and what it has done to the nation over time we are supposed to say well, they made them pay $1.9 billion and no one is going to jail? i cannot imagine too many are happy about this. >>guest: i don't think so. the in edge for corporate america is commit your crime and as one put it, better to seek forgiveness than ask permission. that is what they are doing, seeking forgiveness after the fact. again, if this was an individual, they would be sitting in front of a federal district court judge probably incarcerated awaiting sentencing. >>shepard: but, instead, their stock is up today. thank you. >> police say there is no question, a murder on a crowded street in the middle of th

begs you to ask the question, what else does he say and do that would be deceptive? i believe it's many, many things that he would say and do being deceptive. >> it certainly is curious. there were two letters sent by secretary of state late last night to the chairman of the two former relations committee in the house and the senate and she talks about how immediately, their eyes are on al qaeda. if their eyes were on al qaeda, what in the world did this video stuff come up with? the president, ambassador and president on "the view." what in the world were they trying to do with the video business? >> bottom line, during the campaign in the final day, barack obama wanted to keep that false narrative alive that he, mr. nobel peace prize-wing president of ours -- he pretty much quashed the terrorists' activities, if you will, of the islamic countries that he was able to reach out and -- kind of stem the tide of -- that hatred and the violence coming from some of these countries as it pertained to relationships with americans. and that's not true. they even told americans that al qaeda was

, is begging for money. -- that great project, is begging for money. this is the sort of thing that ought to be supported by the u.s. government. the final thing we need to do in terms of non state actors, al qaeda came closest to developing wmd when they were in control of territory in afghanistan. we have to keep groups like that from getting a base. >> chemical, i wonder if you could talk a little bit about nuclear terrorism. >> again, i am a scientist. i think it is a very small probability. i reject the idea of 1% or 50%. the chance of fukushima happening was less than 1%. it is a low probability, but a horrific consequences. i think if proliferation happens, as nuclear capabilities bread, you'll have more of the wherewithal for terrorists to exploit and therefore more opportunities. i would like to emphasize what was said, you have to deny the territory. that is the lesson in afghanistan. you don't want to give these people time and space to work on these kind of weapons. with that being said, if you look at sudan, somalia, a couple of places, is not an easy thing to accomplish. and
into effect. people aren't going to be happy about that, and the president will be able to say, look, i begged them, i repeatedly said 98% of the american public, they wouldn't get a tax increase if we just took them out of the equation, let's pass legislation extending the bush tax cuts for everyone earning under $250,000 a year. they didn't do it. so, you know, he'll have some leverage on that in terms of the politics because politically, you know, the polls all are very consistent. the election results are pretty consistent. the american public is ready for a modest increase in taxes for the upper 2% of taxpayers. having said that, there's another issue that's coming up in february or march and that's raising the debt ceiling once again. the republicans have a lot of leverage on that right now because the white house, the administration will desperately want to raise that debt ceiling so the u.s. doesn't go into default. that could undermine u.s. creditworthiness, u.s. interest rates, all that kind of stuff, and the republicans will have some serious leverage there down the road. both sides
in the woodward piece. what do you make of him? >> a lot of great woodward stories, as many questions begged as there are answers like who recorded it, who thought it was in their interest to release the recording and what is mcfarland, a respected national security from republican administrations and a long-time fox analyst, what is her side of the story? if you listen to the audio, read the quotes, it doesn't sound like it's a total joke going on there. maybe there's confusion between roger and mcfarland but there are a lot of unanswered questions about it and has people looking at petraeus, as well as fox and asking about the various roles they had through the prism of this conversation. >> but at least according to these quotes there's nothing that the general said as he's quoted that is at all out of context with what he has always said publicly, he is not planning to have a political career right now. >> on that point it's consistent. some of the other things he said are racing some beltway eyebrows. >> and speaking of eyebrows, anna winter, one of the biggest contributors being mentio
the ambassador and others were begging for. and the larger issue, sean, of misunderstanding the nature of what was happening in north africa, with the growth of al qaeda and pretending to the electorate with the election approaching that al qaeda was on its knees. >> sean: i think those are all great questions and observations. let me, if i can, add two more to them because i think it's really person. the report was also clear, there were no protests -- none that day -- as we had been told, not only by susan rice, but by the president himself at the u.n. two weeks later and it had nothing to do with this youtube video. that's disturbing, heading into a presidential election. it tells me we were consciously lied to. >> we certainly know we were misled. i remember the president in the second debate taking umbrage at the suggestion that anybody in his administration, including, he said, the u.n. ambassador who would have misled the nation on what happened -- now it's unequivocally metaphysically true that she misled the nation. the only question is was it a deliberate misleading, in which case it
, begs to question to replace with whom? he did. i think he regretted it. john eisenhower told me that after the u2 was shot down, he went to his father on the plane to the paris summit about to collapse, the paris summit, and said to him, dad, you should have fired that guy, and ike blew up and basically said i'm the president of the united states, but it was a little defensive about it because, you know, he probably should have gotten rid of dulles. they are clearer in retrospect than they are at the time. ike was a great manager, but he was arguably a little slow to get rid of people. i think not in world war ii, no problem with sacking generals in world war ii, but maybe a little slow in his own administration, at least in the second term. this is one squishy area in his presidency. i spent a lot of time on it. my long study of intelligence on the outside, amateur at it, but presidents think you can snap your fingers, and the cia does miraclous things. it doesn't work that way. eisenhower did understand that. he was reasonable about this. this is all highly relevant because ri
, at the end of the day it is gift. >> chris: one thing the economy -- the business community was begging for, it was certainty from washington. we don't care what you do. good policy, bad policy, give us a policy we know we'll live under for the next few years and we can start to make decisions. i don't see how a business man would have any idea what will happen as a result of what is happening here or looking ahead two months to the debt ceiling. >> i agree. i think obama -- president obama out maneuvered the congressional republicans. maybe it isn't hard, sometimes, but can't out maneuver reality and the reality is we are running a $1 trillion deficit and the deal does nothing about that and does nothing to stimulate economic growth and irresponsibly cuts defense and we'll pay a terrible price for that, as a country, and he is the only president we have and this is where -- i'm not making it a partisan point, a terrible failure of leadership, he's the president and the truth is, the speaker can't do it and minority and majority leader can't do it. he has to be serious about dealing with re

, begging for a patch from congress. my theory is this is their way to push us into a flat tax system; right? >> you're correct. the amt is a different way of calculating the tax, taking your income saying we're not giving you many of the itemized deductions and have a different rate. there's been consistently an exemption amount which requires congress to pass a legislation each year to extend it. the exemption is not permanent in our tax code, and right now, it expired going back to january 1st, 2012 so we don't have it right now. >> do you think they could let it go? it's close. in prior years, we had the patch earlier on. >> absolutely, and the irs planned op the patch, and the computers are program the that way. if we don't get it, it not only impacts those who have to pay the amt, but delays refunds because the irs computers have to be reprogrammed. we slotly need the patch and quickly. >> at the same time, though, as dire as it has, they could pass the patch, and say january 15th, make it retroactive and we're fine. just delays the process. >> that's right. until the irs and people kn
